God is Good
A couple of things happened yesterday that left me pretty discouraged. Just a little bit ago, I was out running errands and praying while driving. I asked God if He would help me see His hand at work and to be aware of what He is doing. Literally, not even 3 minutes later, I walked into a store to check something. Now, anytime I walk into a store, I am pretty focused on the task at hand and can be oblivious to what is going on around me. As I was walking through the store, someone said, "Hi Paul!" It took a bit to realize that maybe they were talking to me. I turned around and saw someone I hadn't seen in several years. In fact, I had wondered if I had done something to offend them. But now they were the one initiating the hello to me and we had a wonderful few minutes getting caught up. Was it an earth-shattering moment? Maybe not. But, for me, it was exactly the encouragement I needed in the moment and was blessed to re-connect with this fellow believer. Thank You, Lord!
